    Afternoon chaps and chappesses, Looking to clear my flat in Leigh in the next week or so, and move the entire contents to storage in Chelmsford. Any Shrimpers in the game, or any good recommendations for a removal company? It's the entire contents of a flat, so will need a proper big van. As...

    Joe Yoffe set to challenge FIFA's transfer window.

    Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet. Seems ex-Southend trialist Joe Yoffe is set to take FIFA to court and challenge the transfer window. He currently ply's his trade in Iceland, where due to the adverse weather they endure, the season (and subsequently many player contracts) ends outside...

    Have you warmed to the team

    After reading something kentblues posted earlier, it reminded me of a lot of peoples opinions last season saying it didn't feel like their team any more. I have always supported and loved the Blues no matter what, but after the removal of Tilly etc, many didn't feel any affinity with the team...

    Every fan is important

    Anyone saving or hitting financial difficulties or redundancy in these hard times will understand just how hard it is to balance your social, work and financial lives. 6 or 7 years ago my disposable income was pretty high and I had no real responsibilities money wise. I used to be a STH and...

    Bullies and Bullying

    Now bare with me good readers, this is going somewhere but I want to give it some background first. When I was a kid I was bullied, bad. My first taste of it was at the grand old age of 4 years old at nursery school where a phycotic 5 year old used to attack the entire fraturnity. He would rip...

  13. Moving House

    Looks like our chain is finally complete, plus we have a potential move date of 1st Sept. We plan on doing all the packing ourselves, but want to use a removal firm to do the rest. Still staying in Leigh, so I wondered if members of the Zone could offer any recommendations for removal companies...
  14. Newcastle Suffer the Greatest Loss

    Newcastle United have no manager, an owner that doesn't want them, a vastly inflated wage bill and a squad on the verge of mutiny, yet that was all put into perspective this morning with the news that Sir Bobby Robson passed away. He was 76. A true icon of the game, his playing success was...

  20. Slipperduke


    You would think that, as the single most important match of their history looms up on the horizon, Chelsea might try to put a lid on the gossip and focus on the football, but nothing is ever that simple at Stamford Bridge. Faced with a choice of either (a) clarifying Avram Grant’s future or (b)...
